2010 Olympics

On February 12th we were sitting in Chili's waiting for a table when I started to get emotional watching the parade of nations. I love the Olympics. I love the excitement you see on the athletes faces. I love watching them take pictures and video as they walk in. I wish that I could be a part of that in some way. I know that the games weren't without tragedy, but they were awesome none the less.

I may not have gotten to watch as much as I wanted but that's okay. From what I did see these are some of my favorite athletes.

We love Shawn White. He blew our minds and Paul covets his pants.
Evan showed such class and poise. He was such a great example to everyone.

These girls are gorgeous and talented.
Who doesn't love Apolo? We had so much fun watching his races as a family.

I can't wait for 2012 in London. Maybe I can convince Paul to take me so I can experience that excitement in person ;)

Seriously...we were a bit obsessed this year. Every night, we would hurry and eat dinner so we could all sit down and watch it together. My kids loved it too! So many great athletes and so many inspiring stories. I'm going to miss it. What a great way to bring the world together.

ps. I totally cried at Joanne Rochette's figure skating performances! One of my favorite stories of the Olympics for sure :D

I'm so sad the olympics are over, I think most of us were a little obsessed this year. USA kicked butt! They are so inspiring!

Oooooh, you should definitely talk him into taking you. I was at the Games when they were in Atlanta, & it's an experience I will never forget.
